Deploying LOGIQ on K3s using a Helm Chart

We’re huge fans of Helm Charts and the simplicity they bring to complex application deployments on Kubernetes and MicroK8s. We showed you how you could use Helm Charts to deploy LOGIQ on MicroK8s in a previous post.

We’re huge fans of Helm Charts and the simplicity they bring to complex application deployments on Kubernetes and MicroK8s. We showed you how you could use Helm Charts to deploy LOGIQ on MicroK8s in a previous post. As a follow-up to that article, we’d like to show you how Helm Charts are equally helpful in deploying complex applications on other certified Kubernetes distributions such as K3s. In this article, you’ll learn how we use Helm Charts to deploy the LOGIQ observability platform on K3s. If you’ve never used K3s or Helm Charts before, you can use this article to get acquainted with both. 

What is K3s?

K3s is a highly available, lightweight, and fully compliant Kubernetes distribution. K3s is packaged as a single binary, thereby reducing dependencies and minimizing installation, run, and auto-update steps that you’d typically have to take while managing a production Kubernetes cluster. As K3s is lightweight, you can run a cluster on machines with as little as 512 MB RAM and upwards. 

K3s comes bundled with a local storage provider, a service load balancer, a Helm controller, and the Traefik ingress controller. A single binary and process encapsulate the operation of all Kubernetes control plane components, allowing K3s to automate and manage complex cluster operations like distributing certificates.

Run your favorite Helm Chart using MicroK8s in 5 minutes

Helm is a Kubernetes package manager that helps you find, share, and use software built for Kubernetes. With Helm Charts, you can bundle Kubernetes deployments into a single package you can install by running a single command. At LOGIQ, we use Helm Charts on the regular. One of our favorite Helm Charts is logiq – the same […]

Introduction to Helm - Package Manager for Kubernetes

You have to write a detailed YAML file to deploy resources like pods, deployments, and services on Kubernetes that’s where Helm comes into the play. Helm is a package manager for Kubernetes; it’s the yum and apt of Kubernetes. It allows us to deploy resources to Kubernetes quickly. It deploys charts which are the packages of application. Helm is also an official Kubernetes project in the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) under the category of incubating projects.
